Event overview

The Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service is an opportunity for each of us to reflect on the principles of equality and selflessness that Dr. King embodied. Dr. King believed in celebrating and promoting the worth of every person, great and small. He championed for diverse cultures to live and thrive together in a sprit of love, understanding, and service to one another. On that note, Join the NYC Platoons this MLK weekend at the George P. Davis American Legion Post 116 in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn to help us complete the following tasks: 1. Clearing out the basement floor and second floor or items to create space for future events. 2. Repaint the main floor, clean out the shed, sand down the ceiling, replace old light bulbs. 3. Reorganize the kitchen area and sand down door in Women's bathroom.
